Patch Poll: Who Would You Vote for if Primary Were Today?
Would you choose one of the GOP hopefuls or President Obama?
Maybe the results of Super Tuesday will declare a firm frontrunner among GOP presidential hopefuls. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum still has a small lead over rival Mitt Romney in the latest poll of likely Republican primary voters in Ohio, though the gap between the two men has shrunk since Monday, CBS News reported. But Romney is basking in the glow of winning the Washington state caucuses Saturday.
Ohio is the big prize to win on Super Tuesday, having the most delegates at stake.
Conducted by Quinnipiac University, the poll released Friday found Santorum leads the former Massachusetts governor 35 percent to 31 percent among likely Republican voters, compared to a poll released Monday showing Santorum with 36 percent to Romney's 29 percent.
Romney took Michigan, squeaking by Santorum, and Arizona. Other hopefuls, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, show no signs of backing down or dropping out.
Early voting has begun in Illinois, and for those who want to go to the polls, the primary is March 20.
But what if the primary were held today? Who would you vote for? Take our poll and share your wisdom in the comments below.
Of the Patch readers who responded to last week's poll: Are you giving up anything for Lent?, 54 percent answered no and and 45 percent said yes. Maybe the 54 percent agree with Robert Poznanski who commented: "I've given up trying to give up things for Lent! It's a sure thing, just as New Year's resolutions are "blown," so to, will these! Better to contribute to your favorite charity, as in these times of trying finances, it is a sacrifice to do so and it makes it so much more of a real sacrifice! Bless everyone!!!"
